The Symmetry Seven ~ Beth Jones of The Vintage Society

Category: Real Girl SpotlightsEyeliah @ 2:30 pm

Beth of The Vintage Society has the Boho Style we dream of and the amazing shoe collection to go along with it. At the beginning stages of her blog she was reworking vintage pieces to have more modern lines and selling the items at trunk shows. Flash forward a year or two and now she has skyrocketed to working in a full time paid gig in the Fashion Industry! It’s no wonder she has much less time to post her ‘Instant Outfits’, ‘Shops Around the Corner’ and ‘Vintage Society Girl’ posts of fabulousness. That’s okay we understand, we know you are still out there being fabulous everyday and checking in when you can. Below are Beth’s answers to The Symmetry Seven.

1. What would you name your personal style?
70’s Glamour – a mix of boho glam and preppy chic.

2. Is there anything you wouldn’t wear?
Baby pink ugg boots and a jersey tunic with mid calf leggings..

3. Where do you get your outfit inspirations?
I collect images and photos of my inspirations such as magazine editorials,streetstyle shots from around the world, photos of my style icons (Ali MacGraw, Anita Pallenberg, Janis Joplin), and I love watching movies from the 70’s . Basically anything that makes me stop and stare!

4. Tell us about your day job?
I wear many hats. My main day job is as the online fashion editor for Quiksilver Women. I cover all things related to their clothing line as well as anything fashion. This also includes coming up with ways to market the line to their audience online. We just launched the spring ’09 line with an “It Girl” campaign featuring 6 bloggers in the LA area. We had each one style a look signature to themselves to showcase the different personalities of Quiksilver Women. We are have another exciting project in the works to launch Fall ’09. I also do personal and editorial styling.

5. How much time do you spend working on your blog?
I used to spend a lot of time and energy, but now that I am working for Quiksilver Women – my energy is focused on producing for them. I try to keep things rolling on The Vintage Society as much as possible, but unfortunately.. I don’t have the time I used to.

6. What songs/albums are you loving right now?
I am really cliche when it comes to music. I just love anything that puts me in the mood I am feeling at the moment. Sometimes I want a little Beyonce “Single Ladies”, or “One Republic” and “Coldplay” for the good times, or “Joni Mitchell” for the moody times.

7. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I was a very dramatic little girl and all I could dream of was being a broadway actress on 42nd street in New York City.

Beth thank you so much for participating!! :-)

    Links à la Mode: Fashion History

    Fashion History Edited by Debutante Clothing I was particularly proud of this week’s choices of IFB member links. As a vintage lover, I think fashion history is an often over-looked part of the fashion equation. I was thrilled to…
